at these town hall meetings. rush limbaugh calling them nazis and now nancy's calling these protesters un-american. what a colossal mess. we had the poll last week saying obama washington is divisive. it's just this is a mess. what do you do if you're inside the white house? how do you call a time-out and say enough already? >> i don't know how you do it, joe. joe, i'm afraid that all the beginning of the obama a administration, you are down there on the mall that's thousands and thousands of people that air of good feeling and national unity and the belief that obama may just be that agent of change that can bring us together i'm afraid that has all dissipated and is all but gone. he's not down to bush levels but he's down to the point where he about won the election but it is a much more divisive situation. this is one of the ugliest debates i've ever seen. >> it is. it's ugly. you know, mika, we had said this before, several months ago, that every president over the past 16 years, 17 years, said they're going to change washington. bill clinton was going to bring us all together. divisi
is she mangles a whole bunch of facts, but she also gets some signs off that rush limbaugh. go ahead and copy number of things she says that are wrong. roll the tape. >> you might have heard their philosophical leader, i think his name is rush limbaugh. and he said early on i hope that he does. you know what that means? if the president, your commander-in-chief fails, america fails. now, when a senator says that this will be his waterloo, and we all know what happened at waterloo, then we have him and he fails. do we want a failed state of the united states russian ark so remember, they are spreading fear and they are trying to see that the first president who looks like me fails. and i want you to know, people look at the united states as a country that has changed its way and has elected someone from kenya and kansas. i will put it like that. >> that's quite a headline again. did you know that wreck obama was from kenya and kansas westerner and i think it's from fighting to eisenhower was from kansas. i'm from kansas. stu and his mother is from kansas and his father is from kenya.
, president obama. it is against everything he is trying to do. you loud mouths like rush limbaugh, sean hannity, all these other folks that you listen to daily, even my good friend joe scarborough, it is ridiculous. all you are trying to do is disrupt something a needs to be done for all people. not just your people and the people you e-mail and try to get something done to disrupt something. host: let's hear from our guest. guest: we have been opposing big government for 25 years. doesn't matter who is proposing it. we proposed many of george bush's policies that were encroachments into people's lives. we opposed bill clinton's tax hikes. we opposed george bush role one's tax hikes. it has nothing to do with president obama. it has to do with healthcare reform going in the wrong direction. we've got a lot of ideas and none of them is it the current legislation and we think it takes it entirely in the wrong direction so we are opposed to the policy. host: how many members does freedomworks claim? >> we have over 700,000 members that we have built up the last 25 years. host: free to jo
in for the great rush limbaugh. for people who don't know that microphone is really gold. >> as you well know, it is goal p--- it is gold. sean: in my first five minutes the microphone fell to the ground, oh, no, my career is over. >> i'll try not to do that. sean: you do a great job. let's talk a little bit about the polls. the president's approval rating, every reputable poll shows he's losing ground and health care is losing ground. what's your analysis? >> his personal rating is coming down to meet the unpopularity of his policies. basically it's been a few weeks since "newsweek" said he was like a god. and the more he connects with the policies the more he's a 50-50% like his predecessor, and i think most people, a lot of people really believe he was a post partisan centrist, pragmatic, physically conservative figure that he campaigned as. and as you and a few others pointed out, he's not, the extreme left wing is where he's lived all his life and has a transformtive agenda people don't want. sean: we discussed this with dick morris, his floating this trial balloon about eliminating the
this into people's heads. have they not? >> yes, they shout all day, rush limbaugh and all of rest of them, that this is a trojan horse for a single payer plan, and it is, you know -- it is possible that over time, this will morph into something that resembles single payer, but it's not right now, an the insurance companies are in no danger of going out of business under this bill, under any version of this bill. so if we do end up with a single payer plan, it won't be for many, many years, and people argue to the contrary are just lying about the particulars of this program. obama by design did not move to single pay because he realized that the country wasn't ready for it. >> we have news that cash or clunkers has just passed which we'll get to detail the ex-next a minute. this last piece of tape, the heart of the thing. the last question went into a log diatribe asserting the president would somehow get his legislation passed without congress. just go and make it happen, he's dictator obama not the president, and she ended with this piece of tape. >> i don't believe sincerely -- i don't
blaming boogiemen. stop blaming top delay. stop blaming karl rove. they have no power. rush limbaugh has no power. fox news has no power to stop this. democrats own washington, d.c. so stop setting up strawmen. like barack obama's been doing from day one and then knocking them down. >> does that mean i can still blame newt gingrich for quite a bit of our problems? >> you and dale hunt can get together and have a newt party if you want. >> don't give them a target. >> seriously, it's just laughable. they always set up these straw men and knock them down. people have figured it out. wait a second. they own the senate. they own the house. they own the white house. conservatives can't do anything. we can't do anything to stop healthcare reform. if democrats decide they want to pass healthcare reform, there's not a damn thing a conservative in america can do to stop it. >> joining the conversation, contributing editor to "new york" magazine, gabriel sherman. he writes, "brooks frequently seems more sympathetic toward obama than the liberal paul krugman. he has written columns praising obama's

and the rest of it. i think the leadership is afraid of rush limbaugh, apparently, because he is encouraging all this stuff. >> the democrats are pulling a rabbit out of a hat, and the republicans are handing the democrats their rabbit. the democrats have no argument. they have no fathers. they -- they have no facts. they don't really have a bill. if people were really just to stand up quietly and civilly raise questions, the money doesn't add up, the c.b.o. has said that you say it is going to control costs but it increases it by a trillion dollars. all of this stuff, it's really out there. they would be winning these debates as they were before the town halls. what is happening is this is causing a backlash. it is completely unnecessary. it is shooting yourself in the foot. if you want to demonstrate, you want to shout, do you it outside carrying a sign. when you walk inside, you ask a question, is this going to have two effects? one, a public opinion will make people unsympathetic to those who oppose the bill, and secondly, it is going to give a great excuse for the democrats when congres
limbaugh saying the health care logo looks like a russian swastika? >> i don't know what to say about that. americans are suffering under the rising costs of health care, they are paying 30% more out of pocket than they did, it's threatening their jobs, they are being denied health coverage. >> we're debating that. >> trying to discuss that in a civil way is extremely important. >> you were a journalist for three decades, you worked for abc, cbs, you were a guest on this program many times. is it uncomfortable to be pushing an administration line on health care on people who were your former colleagues. >> you mean trying to promote, advocate on behalf of health insurance reform is a gratifying thing to do. this is the country's greatest need. they have been waiting for decades -- >> if you were still a journalist you would be sitting in this seat asking the questions i am. instead you're a saleswoman. >> it's something all of us in the administration believe deeply. as a journalist i covered the last effort to try to bring health insurance reform to the country. i saw how the special inte
limbaugh -- because we do need both. rush limbaugh rallies the crowd and is a good job of educating people on issues. but you will rarely hear him say call congress. it is other voices is a call congress or go to your tea party. we need a variety of voices. the problem in the blogosphere, and we are really bad about this compared to the left, is if i do something at red state, a protest, there's going to be someone who will spend 10,000 words writing why i either should not do it or if i would just do it their way instead of my way it would be more effective. you get that everywhere, but the right is notorious about everyone wants to be the next rush limbaugh or george will or glenn back. -- glen beck. i am a big believer at throwing stones are republican politicians have gotten out of line. [applause] as i said this morning, we are rapidly getting to a situation where we may just take back the house and it will hurt us because we have not learned all the lessons we need to learn. that's why we need to grow a lot of stone's right now so they figure things out before next year. inly the ri
senator called the protesters un-american. she retracted that. rush limbaugh went on a long speech during his radio show where he compared democrats to nazis. he compared the president to hitler. i am wondering if the president has seen any of this. the nazi imagery has been condemned by jewish groups but i'm wondering if he feels anything about this. >> i think he has seen news reports. i don't know whether it is written or cable reports. regardless of where we are and the differences we have on an issue as important as health care, i know the president believes strongly that we can discuss these issues without personally maligning the person we are discussing this issue with. we want to do so in a way that respects the dignity of each individual. i think anytime you make references to what happened in germany in the '30's and 40's, i think you are talking about an event that has no equivalent. anytime anyone ventures to compare anything to that, they are on thin ice. it is best not deployed. we can have a discussion in our democracy about where we want to go and why or why not we want t
limbaugh and sean hannity and george bush are at greater risk of assassination van barack obama. >> guest: as a fun part of the book. in the last chapter i point out i wouldn't have mentioned it if they haven't brought it up so much other ad campaign you keep hearing about this unique rest of, is that being assassinated because he is black in and this is unlike any other president or any other presidential candidate in the call in for a special secret service protection and article about i'm so worried review it and there was some liberal in britain sank in the is elected he will be assassinated so i wouldn't have mentioned if they haven't been dangling the big red tape in front of me but in point of fact pretty much every presidential assassination or attempted assassination in the history of america was committed by a liberal. some version have entered his communist palestinian extremists and there are a couple who didn't particularly have politics someone include john wilkes booth in that and john hinckley, but envelopes with casey was an actor. he was being hit a piece maugre in and t
as it would give ammunition to people he describes as the far right wing with it is rush limbaugh or sean and unity and the lights and people that apparently he feels has an antipathy toward the black community. don't have a sincere passion for helping uplift that community is so he says we don't need to have those people to give them ammunition. i think bill cosby said it's not a matter of airing dirty laundry. it's not as if there are people who don't know about the high dropout rates you don't know about the achievement gap between black and white children who don't know about the high incarceration rates and the celebration of the drug culture and as think it is so difficult to have the conversation. it is so painful for some to hear and then there are those who as the caller points out will legitimately use it to to distorted and in some cases use it to say we don't need social interventions to try to help those who have been left behind and often left behind because of historical and justice in society. said that if these people and thinking to positions that are highly polarized an
is not that we need pundits or activists, we need both. rush limbaugh rallies in the crowd, does a good job of educating people on the issues. others are the ones you rarely will hear calling congress. we need a variety of voices. the problem of the blogosphere is the writing. if i do something that protests, there will be someone who will spend 10,000 words writing why i either should not do it or if i would do it their way instead of my way it will be much more effective. you get that everywhere. the right is notorious about that, everyone wants to be the next rush limbaugh or gen -- george will. the problem is when we start throwing stones to each other as opposed to throwing stones at the other side. i am a big believer at throwing stones at republican politicians who have gotten out of line. [applause] as i said this morning, we are rapidly getting to a situation where we may just take back the house, and it will hurt us, because we have not learned all the lessons we need to learn. we can throw a lot of stones right now. in the right blogosphere, you have some a competing voices is th

rush limbaugh di. congressman cess stack -- accuse him for going to hell for supporting this legislation as accused of this morning, you're not helping your cause, you come across as a whack job. >> you pick one person that said that. >> i just listed four different instances. >> i want to look at the bill. that matters to me. i would like to ask the congressman this question he says his bill is so good why on page 427 does the government mandate programs for life sustaining treatment. the government will tell me how much treatment i get at the end of life. how is that good health for me. >> congressman. >> no. the only thing it says is we will reimburse the doctor if they decide to sit down with someone voluntarily and talk about consultation who do you want to have a living will. >> ben, i know you like to read the bill. the previous comment you made about the price fixing shows you're just looking at words and you don't understand what they mean. >> have you read the bill? because i have read the bill with four doctors. >> you can't per se have a price fixing case aga
just tells a lot of whoppers now. believe me, rush limbaugh and sarah palin are saying some things extremely off the charts untrue of the plan but i wrote down some of the things balma said which was a whopper. he said everybody could keep their plan. six million are going to lose their plan. preventive medicine will cost $90 million. government would be out the health care decisions. he tells one thing after another making it seem so easy. believe me, this is not easy. it's going to take some sacrifices and some really painful cuts for people to get this system under control, and often, when i look at him, i think he's over-promising, not as much as the other side but to a significant degree. >> certainly not as much as other other side because the other side, i think, has gone beyond the pale. the fear is not just about this plan. there's a fear of robbing the land. i mean, between 2000 and 2009, the private sector basically didn't create any jobs in this country. there's a fear, if you live in ohio, you can't see your grandchildren unless you drive a car or bus somewhere because
the rush -- the rise, pardon me, decade-plus ago of rush limbaugh. today, you know, it's hard, man, it's hard for a guy like me because i get branded a conservative. you know i have never healed myself out that way. i have plenty of conservative views and plenty of liberal views but i constantly feel like i'm swimming upstream because the people who tune in, they expect that that's what they're going to get, and, frankly, many of them are seeking that level of reassurance. i'm not there to offer you reassurance. i'm there to hopefully ask entertaining and probing questions and not to browbeat. >> let's take a look at some more of the president on your program. he's talking about misinformation. i wonder if that's his problem or his problem is people really do have a sense of what he's doing and a lot of people in the center right as well as the right don't want him to do it, which is increase the federal role in taking responsibility for ensuring people's health. i'm not sure the right and center right are comfortable with this basic idea of taking national responsibility for people wh
. and talk show host rush limbaugh is pushing the nazi theme, comparing on his website the obama health care logo with the nazi swastika and devoting plenty of air time comparing the president's the united states and house speaker nancy pelosi to adolf hit lettler. >> the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika. plenty between nancy pelosi and these people showing up at town halls. to protest a hitler-like policy. that's being heralded by hitler-like logo. oh, another similarity. obama is asking citizens to wrap each other out, like hitler did. >> he's just like hitler. you know what that means? he deserves, right? that's where the actual republican party, the would-be responsible adult, opposed to health care reform. rnc chairman michael steele is going for the, who me? approach saying there is absolutely nothing to do with encouraging angry town hall protests. mr. steele said in a conference call, we're not encouraging people to be angry. some people that's how they express frus trashgs but that's not something deliberately coordinateed by me or anyone one state party. you
